Zenit St. Petersburg swingman Sergey Karasev discussed his NBA experience and life in the USA, mentioning that someone needs luck, among other things, to succeed in the league. When asked how difficult it was for him when he arrived in USA, he simply answered: “highly difficult,” talking to Zenit Radio. “In my first year I wasn’t quite ready for the league. I was a young boy that lacked physicality and many qualities in my game. In my first year . When I moved to Brooklyn, I got the chance I wanted. But in the NBA you need luck. If you’re in the right team playing for the right coach, it makes no difference who you are. White or black, strong or weak. If he sees you in the team’s system, then you will play.”
What drove him to this decision? “Probably the main reason that made me come back to Russia is to play in a team where I can lead”, said the 22-year old swingman in an exclusive interview with Russian website SportsDaily.ru. “This is a challenge for me. To feel like a leader, to prove to myself that I’m ready for this role. Ι want to be one of the key persons in a team, not just go in for ten minutes. I hope that Zenit will be successful in VTB League and then it will be possible for me to go back to the NBA.”
Storyline: Sergey Karasev Free Agency
Vasily Karasev, head-coach of Zenit Saint Petersburg and father of Sergey Karasev, said that his son will no longer play for the Nets next season. Brooklyn decided to not pick up the option on Karasev’s contract for 2016-2017 season, so Russian player will be an unrestricted free-agent this summer. In an interview with Izvestia.ru coach Karasev said: ‘Sergey is fine, he’s already working for the next season. It’s too early to say where he’ll play next season. We will consider all the options, both from NBA and Europe. One thing is for sure, Sergey won’t play for the Nets next season’
